Since depth measuring devices for real-world scenarios became available in the recent past, the use of 3d data now comes more in focus of human action recognition. Due to the increased amount of data it seems to be advisable to model the trajectory of every landmark in the context of all other landmarks which is commonly done by dimensionality reduction techniques like PCA. In this paper we present an approach to directly use the subspaces (i.e. their basis vectors) for extracting features and classification of actions instead of projecting the landmark data themselves. This yields a fixed-length description of action sequences disregarding the number of provided frames. We give a comparison of various global techniques for dimensionality reduction and analyze their suitability for our proposed scheme. Experiments performed on the CMU Motion Capture dataset show promising recognition rates as well as robustness in the presence of noise and incorrect detection of landmarks.
